The technology of color coated sheet was first developed in the United States in 1927 and the first production line of coated steel sheet in the world was built in 1936. Its products are mainly used to make shutters and windshields to replace wood products.
Especially during the outbreak of World War II, due to the need of war, the rapid development of arms industry, shipbuilding industry and transportation industry, and the increasing demand for sheet metal greatly promoted the technological process
of deep processing of cold-rolled sheet in steel industry. The research and solution of anti-corrosion treatment on the surface of sheet metal is just the color coated sheet metal. It opens up the space for development.
Since the 1950s, color coated panels have been widely used in the construction industry. The first broadband coating units were built in 1955 in the United States. At the same time, the European and American countries are launching a "architectural revolution" and the application of steel in the construction industry is developing irresistibly. In order to decorate and distinguish steel structures, steel was quickly coated with varnish of different colors. In the following years, the improvement of painting technology promoted the development of coil coating industry. Since the 1960s, the production of color coated sheets has developed rapidly and the output has been increasing. The production line of color coated sheet is mainly distributed in North America, Europe, East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. In addition, there are some production lines in South America, South Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
